New Dynamic Balance Acoustic Array

Whether upgrading your home theater setup with an advanced Atmos configuration, or enjoying your favorite music, Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you're listening to. This patented technology eliminates issues that reduce speaker performance.

High-Resolution Audio Performance

Polk's newly-designed Terylene dome tweeter delivers clear and detailed high-frequency response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. Certified and capable of delivering 40kHz to support the latest high resolution audio files so it feels like you're right there in the studio or concert hall.

Custom Mid-Range Drivers

Mica-reinforced polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds, four-layer voice coils, massive ceramic motor structures, and high-temperature Conex fiber spiders combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, resulting in clean, clear, bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and great durability.

Power Port Deep Bass Technology

Power Port is Polk's patented design that smoothly transitions the air flow from the speaker's port into your listening area. It also extends the overall bass port, providing great surface area to eliminate turbulence and distortion for bigger, more musical, deep bass impact. Plus, it offers 3dB more bass response output than a traditional port.

Four-Driver Cascading Tapered Crossover Array

These speakers give you a seamless, lifelike soundstage no matter where you're seated in your listening room. There's no more "sweet spot" - instead, it's all around you.

Quality Crafted Cabinet Design

Strong, rigid, and acoustically inert enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. And non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, with extra bracing and minimum thick baffles, ensuring a more lifelike sound.

American Modern Styling

Curved edges offer a sensual yet powerful look that fits with any home décor - available in a stunning black-washed walnut finish.

Limited Warranty

Designed in California, engineered in Baltimore, and manufactured under the strictest quality controls, Polk speakers are built to last and include a limited five-year warranty.
